this phone is excellent.
no lag in media center, very fast interface, EXCELLENT CAMERA, chat-like messaging is awesome like iphone, battery life is awesome (2-5 days depends on how often you use the xenon flash. xenon flash drains battery)
however, the phone's case gets hairline scratches easily, so whoever want to buy this phone, be sure to buy a silicon case.
Bono, 17 Dec 2009Dr.Mahmoud Adel - I have this phone and think the battery life is very good ... I get 2-3 days... morefine , but i can't attach the phone to the adapter every night ...
that's why having a phone with GOOD battery life does matter to me ...
i make almost 100-150 hours/month ... so getting a battery that drops so often isn't reliable option for me , keeping in mind my comparison with my old mobile w910 ...
this phone is very good (till now) after 1.5 month ...
but it's NOT for heavy users (regarding quality , as the paint get wiped off so fast -in comparison with nokia phones- , and its design is dust/dirt collector ) and the battery is NOT that superior (in my opinion) and i'm free to say what matters me regarding the phone (call me nut or crazy , it doesn't matter )...
this phone IS GOOD , but expect only what you'll pay for ....nothing more
and thanks for you advice , but buying another additional phone-battery is better option , than buying a car-battery ....
I bought this phone yesterday. I felt in love to it cause it's very nice. Excellent camera, stereo and many other features. It's slim and beautiful. I think 3-4 days of battery is really good cause my previous phone doesn't even last for 3 days. Don't hesitate to buy it!
Dr.Mahmoud Adel - I have this phone and think the battery life is very good ... I get 2-3 days with a few phone calls and it paging my email/data all the time.
If you want weeks of battery life attach a car battery to it ;)
What do you expect?
They give you something called a battery chrager the phone - Why dont you like plugging it in every night?
I think this phonhe is gr8 ....
PS: I have a 16GB card - works fine, not slow.
Cam is superb ... the phone is very nice...
Dr.Mahmoud, 16 Dec 2009guys , i said 5-6 days with average usage .... i.e making calls only .... but no bluetooth ,... moreDr Mahmood u wrote that the panel paint is fading off I mean u wrote black turns white and white turns black,which one did u use black or silver
Dr.Mahmoud, 16 Dec 2009guys , i said 5-6 days with average usage .... i.e making calls only ....
but no bluetooth ,... moreman are u nuts.. my 5800 doesnt even last 2 days.
and 3-4 days of minimum battery life is BAD for u?
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2009Does the c901 have a secondary camera for video calling. Because i dont see it anywhere?? Thanks nope it doesnt
Dr.Mahmoud, 16 Dec 2009guys , i said 5-6 days with average usage .... i.e making calls only .... but no bluetooth ,... moreGlad this is at least a reliable SE. My 3 yr old 6230i barely goes 2 days with a new original 1020mah battery... Wish i could afford it
guys , i said 5-6 days with average usage .... i.e making calls only ....
but no bluetooth , no music , no flash reload (camera) , no 3G ....
when i consume all of the previous , it lasts like 3-4 days ...
and yes it's VERY bad in comparison to my old W910i , which was lasting around 9-12 days with average usage and around 5-6 days in high processing
and yes Nokia phone battery are SHITTY with no doubt , and that's why i moved to be SE's fan
this phone is good and very stable , no lag or hangs, no restarts , no delays even with multi-applications
Is it worth buying for? Is youtube application working well? I know it's a camera phone so no question about that. Does it lag or hang? I need an immediate answer.
WELL , i got this phone as the last chance and trial with SE because i got enough of my old w910i (you can read my comment there)
this phone generally OK , and
- way faster than the W910i (8 /10)
- the camera is good ( 8/10 )
- the sound recorder is better than w910 ( 7/10)
- battery is BAD , really bad , it lasts only like 5 or 6 days Maximum with average usage (5.5/10)
- the lens cover is dust collector (3/10)
- memory handle 4 Gb VERY well (9/10)
- generally : a bit heavy and some time is can't focus well in objects specially if there is a glass or something , face detection is good but smile shutter is customizable and this is just stupid , night mode is good , accelerometer is good , the sound is a bit louder than my old w910i (but still the headset that come with C-series lower than the W-series ...so i used my old W-headset and it's working nicely) ,the package is just CRAP you got almost nothing , in comparison to my old w910 i got (CD,memory reader,2Gb memory,USB cable,headset with 3 ear plugs, charger and the manual )but with c901 i got ( charger , headset , and 512 mb memory) nothing else , the light detector is CRAP as i stay in complete dark room for an hour and the keypad doesn't light up at all !!!!
one last thing , the phone IS NOT for heavy users , as for some reason , the black phone will turn into white , the silver one will turn in black as the colors of the phone will wipe away after just like a month or two

Anonymous, 09 Dec 2009i have a question about its camera. does the picture get blurred if you have shaky hands or i... moreit will be blurred if xenon flash is turned off but if its turned on it will not. try to get a pic of a rotating fan and you'll be amazed how its blades will turn out on pic.
i am a se handsets fan. just had c901 mid nov09. just like my previous handset sek850i it has great pics plus the xenon flashis powerful. when i buy handset i always consider that it has xenon flash and smile shutter feature is quite good and i really love the music. quite amaze as well with the interface of the handset bec its like windows vista or 7.
